Cantilevered Entrance Canopy

To prevent the pupils at the school from having to queue in the rain, our client Western Blueprint approached us to design and install an external canopy to the entrance of the School building.

Our Solution

The brief was for a simple and elegant solution, we recommended a revised version of our Brecon Walkway pre-designed canopy. We tweaked the original design, changing the scalloped edge to a straight edge for a sleek look to the canopy.

Base Structures designed, engineered, manufactured and installed the cream coloured PVC canopy and the integrated guttering solution.

The Results

The two stage bracketed design allowed for the brickwork to be reinstated around the first fix brackets, resulting in a tidier detail at the mounting locations.

The client was very satisfied with the end result with the canopy meeting the requirements for both weather protection and fitting into the aesthetic of the school courtyard.
